Diablo 3 updating blizzard launcher stuck
One name that I can remember is “CPU Control”, or something similar, but there are a bunch floating around the intertubes.I ended up writing a little utility that I tossed into Startup to do this for me.You see, I just put together a brand new Dual Xeon E5-2687W system.It is a beast: dual processor, 8 cores each, with Hyper Threading.
Every single time, over and over and over and over again.I did some experimenting and it seems to hit once the # of available logical processors hits 17.If it’s 16 or less, no matter how you spread them around the two physical processor sockets, it’s fine.That means Task Manager shows 32 tiny little performance graphs. NET really fast (lots of C /CLI these days), and is killer for working on all that multithreaded rendering code.
Anyway, the fix is a bit clumsy but it seems to work (so far!
The Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit can set this for a program permanently.
